HOW IT WORKS - FOR THE PATIENT
MONTHLY PHONE CALLS
Each month, you'll receive at least one call from your dedicated care coach to discuss your care plan. They will ask you a customized series of questions specific to your health care. The end result of this dedicated ongoing relationship is to help you maintain your best overall health in between your regular doctor in office appointments. This may include communication with your doctor or provider. Your care plan serves to continuously clarify, collect, and provide information both to you and your provider, so you and your provider have an updated easily accessible stream of information and health care assistance.
If there's a question or a change in your condition your care coach will immediately connect you with a nurse practitioner who will help work through the issue and make a recommendation on your next step. Otherwise, the nurse practitioner reviews your records and communicates with your provider.
Each month, your physician reviews the status of your care plan and details from our calls. Your provider has an updated concise picture of your health matters based on your care coach relationship. Having clarity of up to date information and issues supports precise professional focus on what matters most to both the provider and to you, the patient.
